FDA Sends Warning Letter to Trillium Farms Egg Production Facility

The FDA has sent a warning letter to Trillium Farms LLC egg production facility in Ohio for “serious violations of the Prevention of Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) in Shell Eggs During Production, Storage, and Transportation Regulation.” This failure causes the shell eggs to be considered adulterated.

FDAThe facility induced molt in a flock, but then did not perform environmental testing for SE in the poultry house as required by law. The facility also did not monitor for rodents by appropriate methods, and did not have a definitive Biosecurity Plan for taking action.

They also did not maintain records documenting compliance with refrigeration requirements. Eggs must be held at or below 45 degrees F within 36 hours of lay. The letter was dated November 29, 2012. The facility had fifteen working days to notify the FDA in writing of the steps taking to correct the violations noted in the letter.
